1963 CHEVY CORVAIR 95 RAMPSIDE -- THE CORVAIR PICKUP TRUCK
Corvair, Chevrolet's first compact car, featured a rear-mounted, air-cooled engine like the VW Beetle. Chevy followed the German company's lead further by turning the Corvair into a van and a pickup with the 1963 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside Pickup. Conversion from a sedan to a van/pickup involved moving the driver seat forward over the front wheels. Total length stayed at 180 inches, but wheelbase actually shrank from 108 to 95 inches. The commercial series was badged "Corvair 95" for its wheelbase. Three models were offered -- Corvan, Loadside, and Rampside. The Corvan was a panel van. The Loadside was a pickup with conventional double-walled box and rear tailgate, while the Rampside added a door on the right side of the bed that folded down to form a ramp. Unique to Corvair, this feature allowed heavy loads to be rolled instead of lifted into the bed, and Chevrolet sales literature never missed a chance to illustrate it. The top edge was covered with rubber to protect it when lowered to the ground or curb. The cargo bed was longer than a conventional truck's bed, but wasn't level. The rear half of the floor had to be raised to clear the engine. Corvair 95 sales never took off and pickups were never as popular as Corvans. The 1963 Rampside listed for $2,212 when new, but found only 2,046 buyers. Like the Chevy Corvair, this Corvair 95 Rampside pickup is unique and is a rarity to find one today. Thanks very much for viewing this Corvair 95 Rampside pickup truck.

A couple of interviews with Corvair owners at the South 71 Cruiser's Cruise Night event this month. Lots of other cars there, but the Corvairs seemed like an interesting topic to record.
